Our Youth:
Supporting The Leaders of Tomorrow


Puerto Rican FlagThere is no doubt - Our youth is our future! In a recent survey of HPRSD members, it was unanimous the sentiments that, as an organization, we should develop programs to foster the development of our youth within the context of our Puerto Rican heritage and customs.

The support from our members to get involved has been tremendous, including those that have children, grandchildren, kids in high school and college, or young adults starting their careers.

Programs are being developed or reinstated to stimulate the desired social, cultural, and educational activities. As we know, to keep kids interested, it has to be fun! There is so much we can do if we work together.
